    Maxwell 2 cylinder Runabout

    Joe, I have an 07 model DR not sure what you exactly want, but this is a 3spd progressive trans with 22hp and can cruise at good speed. A rare car. I will be home in about a week. This is much rarer then the 14hp models with 2 spd and dont come up often.

    40hp or larger chassis wtd

    thank you. maybe I should have specified cubic inches.............. I understand ratings were often way off, just looking for a chassis with an engine that will allow it to cruise a comfortable 65mph. so obviously a 4 spd might be better then a 3 spd.

    SO TESLA IS TANKING....YOUR THOUGHTS

    They will probably have their own tech. that does similar things anyway. The chinese recently tried to acquire Micron Technology from us. Trump put a stop to it. They are at least 5 yrs behind us in the chip sector and cant compete overnight. Chip tech can take many yrs to develop. there is no doubt though, that they are on a quest to knock us out. They dont play by our rules. ruthless would be a good choice of words. Gasoline in China runs around 12. a gallon, so electric cars are the way to go. Also their pollution is beyond horrible compared with the rest of the universe. India too has horrible pollution problems.

    SO TESLA IS TANKING....YOUR THOUGHTS

    Gas is not dying it’s slowing down as alternatives gain market share. actually Terry, dont think that is quite true yet............... China and India are just now getting cars and I am quite sure they arent electric. Refining is Americas #1 resource at the moment and there is no slowing down in sight. We ship more fuel out of the country, then anyone else by far. We have the technology that countries like Russia and China dont.

    In this country, only petrol is taxed at the pump. Diesel is not. and diesel today is much more then gas. go figure! growing up, diesel was a bargain..................... so back to the initial problem that was never solved.........the batteries. Hey nice looking car! Thanks, but it wont go anywhere.

    ttt.....................................
  19. I am open- in the 10-13k range should do it. did see a roadster for 13k recently and might go that route. I will end up with a car that is far more solid- not needing woodwork and pretty much ready to go. Headed out on vacation this Sat till end of month, and then will deal with it when I get home. selling off the projects and upgrading to running, driving cars. Life is too short to ONLY play with rust..............lol!
  20. still looking for an original model A ford vicki as well as a 30-31 roadster in original condition meaning........... original paint, upholstery, top. chrome, etc. mechanical can be repaired. rusty and crusty is my preference. what do you have? rdz69@aol.com
  21. so now I am leaning towards buying an older restoration and "distressing" it. I think it might be easier and less work in the long run. I did the same with my 07 Maxwell DR and it looks like the paint is from 100 yrs ago. Has fooled most who have seen it.
